Last week Heidi Klum and her boyfriend, Martin Kristen, took a quick break from the usual hustle and bustle of their hectic days to pop a squat on a park bench while they watched Klum’s children play.

Shortly after Klum, 39, and Seal, 49, divorced, she became close with Kristen, who was initially the family’s bodyguard.

"I've known him for four years, and he's been with our family for the last four years," Klum told Katie Couric on Katie in September. "He's cared for our entire family, mostly for our four children [and] helped us tremendously. I trust him, I trust him with my children's life. He's a great man, and we just got to know each other from a completely different side."

In other news, Klum’s Project Runway, now in its 11th season, just kicked off last month, with Zac Posen stepping in for longtime judge Michael Kors. The season’s third episode, which will feature guest judge and Sex and the City star Kristin Davis, will air Thursday on Lifetime at 9 p.m. EST.— Hal Sundt
